Register for Wheaton Connection!

Connection is our hallmark two-day event designed to help you, your parents, and family experience all that Wheaton has to offer! See our tentative schedule below, subject to change as details are finalized. Thursday will give you an opportunity to experience student life to the fullest, including an overnight stay in the residence halls! On Friday, you'll have plenty of options to choose from as you explore adademics, extracurriculars, chapel, and more.

Parents and Family

Family members (especially parents) are strongly encouraged to attend Wheaton Connection with their student! All of the sessions on the schedule are open for parents to join (with the exception of class visits, due to classroom size constraints). Students and parents are encouraged to "divide and conquer", with parents and guests invited to attend informational sessions while students attend class.


Travel Tips

If you are traveling by plane, we recommend either renting a car, taking an Uber or contacting a taxi company for transportation to and from the airport.

Because we can provide housing for one night only, please make arrangements if you need to arrive early or stay late. We're only able to accommodate high school juniors and seniors in the residence halls. Any other prospective students, parents and family members who plan to attend will need to stay at a nearby hotel.

Packing List

Students staying overnight in a residence hall will need a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and toiletries. We suggest bringing several layers of comfortable clothing, walking shoes, and an umbrella. A few extra dollars to spend at Sam's Cafe or the bookstore is always a great idea!

Parking Information

Parking will be available in the Billy Graham Hall parking lot.
